Who’s the « active researcher » ?
In spite of the many bibliographic researches that have studied the different types of « actors » in the social movements, we haven’t encounter a clear and obvious definition of the concept of «the active researcher ». That’s why we will try in this paper to define this concept, define its role and its position in the social movement with a presentation of a portrait of this « actor ».
And in order to have a further look on this issue, we have made a comparison between the « active researcher » and the other typical actors such as artists, bloggers and journalists. Finally, we have studied how he influences the social movement and to what extent does he impacts it ; making in that different interviews with specialist researchers in human sciences and field activists.
